Known for its classic Art Deco architecture, Chrysler Building is one of the city's most recognizable landmarks. Located on Manhattan's east side, the 319 m (1046 ft) skyscraper, built in 1930, used to be the world's tallest building until the construction of the Empire State Building. Because it was originally intended to be the Chrysler Corporation's headquarters, the building has replicas of 1929 Chrysler radiator caps as the corner ornamentation on the 31st floor. Although much of the building is leased to businesses and unavailable to visitors, take a moment to admire the building's exterior and visit the lobby to get a closer look at the Art Deco details and the renowned ceiling mural by Edward Trumbull.

Chrysler Building Reviews
Try to get a perspective and view of this gorgeous skyscraper office building built during the height of the art deco period. The style is superb. Step into the lobby. more »
An icon of the NYC skyline, the building is beautiful to look at...but not worth visiting. I’m not going to touch on the aesthetics which are an entirely different matter, this review is only concerne... more »
One of the most original, beautiful and amazing skyscraper in Manhattan. Located on Lexington Avenue. It's luxuriously decorated in art deco style inside and with gargoyles just below the top. You can see it's distinguished flaky top with a needle from the different parts of New York City, even from Long Island. It's also the second tallest building in the city centre. Highly recommended to everyone to observe
This is just the most beautiful building to me. And the night just gives it a whole new facade. I could not go into the building, so if you reading this a tour or observation deck would just be super! Check it out from the Empire Stare or Top of the Rock at night, so worth it.
